IPv6 not resolving hostnames

Expected Behaviour:

The Dashboard show the hostnames of all clients ipv6 and ipv4

actual Behaviour:
Only the ipv4 clients are beeing resolved.

I try numerus fixses i found in the forum but non helpt.

Debug Token:

What are the outputs of the following commands from the Pi terminal - on the first command output remove your web password:

cat /etc/pihole/setupVars.conf

cat /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.conf


pi@PiHole:~ $ cat /etc/pihole/pihole-FTL.conf

Can you show us a screen shot of the IPv6 not resolving hostnames issue?


that is the out out of dig-x


Forum tip - you can copy that output to your clipboard and paste the text into a reply. That makes it easier to read in many cases and also allows text searching/copying.

Thx; next time

Have you tried using Pi-Hole as DHCP server?

No, my USG is the DHCP server, but I will try.

Using Pihole as an DHCP server hasn´t changed anything. Is it possible to activte the ipv6 conditional forwarding?

Why not.
Just make sure DNS queries dont get looped back to Pi-hole like for example when you configure upstream WAN DNS setting on the router to point to Pi-hole.

The web GUI uses below DNS nameserver(s) to lookup names for IP's:

pi@noads:~ $ cat /etc/resolv.conf

For example lookup name for my laptop

pi@noads:~ $ host -t ptr
Using domain server:
Aliases: domain name pointer laptop.dehakkelaar.nl.
